Sherwood "thing" to be investigated

Five years ago, local archaeologists discovered a thing, an open-air Viking meeting place, on Hanger Hill in Sherwood Forest, England. Now the experts are moving in for an official survey.

Several years ago, Lynda Mallett, Stuart Reddish, and John Wood found a 200-year-old document describing Sherwood Forest and Hanger Hill. The trio found the site, complete with three standing stones on top. Further research identified the site as Thynghowe, which led the experts to believe the site might be both a Viking thing and a bronze era burial ground.

Archaeologists from University College London plan to use the latest technology to further investigate the site.
